Membership

We try to offer a comprehensive resource on Dying -all the good information you need in one place. This saves you hours of precious time, mining through tons of poor information for information gold. We try to keep our information relevant and up to date.

We are also more than information, we are a community of people doing this journey together. We know that the end of life journey is difficult and as such we want to ensure that our website is not only good but also safe.
Membership offers us an opportunity of being selective about who we allow in and who we can ask to leave.

Your best interests are in our best interests.

Why Membership

~

Privacy protection

We respect your privacy and do not send annoying emails. We have an opt -in system if you want to stay in touch and be informed through our monthly Newsletter.

Protection from unsolicited third -party opportunists

Some people are out to make a quick buck, but not on our watch- We are on the lookout for people wanting to push marketing raging from funeral plans to insurance policies. We cannot always stop them, but as a community we can be on the lookout and get rid of them through our membership system.

Protecting the dignity of life and personal information of our community

When people share their stories and emotions, we think this is valuable and worth protecting. As such we only allow members to share information and view information that has been shared. As a community doing life and death together we think there is simply too much a stake to have an open-ended website without membership protection.

Value

We have great value options. As a Non-for-profit organisation our focus is on giving. While we would love to offer all our resources at no cost, this is not possible and we rely on our products and your generosity to enable us to continue our good work.

An “easy to leave” option

We know that our resources are not for everyone and are not required on an ongoing basis. Some come and go in a day, others like to stay. Regardless, ending membership is an easy single step. Click on “Goodbye” and we will take care of it from our side.
